Ronald McDonald Family Room Celebrates First Milestone

Posted On: 08/04/2011

Our Ronald McDonald Family Room celebrated an exciting milestone today, when staff registered the 100th family to stay in the newly opened space!  Although we didn’t anticipate reaching this milestone so quickly, we’re thrilled to be serving even more families than we originally expected.  At this rate, more than 4,000 inpatient families will benefit from the space each year.

There couldn’t be a better time to share photos of our beautiful Family Room, which includes four bedrooms with private baths, as well as a common area with a fully-stocked kitchen, dining room and living room area. Warm and welcoming, the space is designed to give families a homelike environment to rest and rejuvenate during their child’s hospital stay. We’re proud to be partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest to provide this wonderful space for our families.

Colorful artwork and warm wood tones greet families at check-in.

The kitchen and dining area features a fully stocked pantry and cupboards.

The kitchen features spacious counter space and stainless steel appliances.

Of course, each sleeping room features its own private bathroom.
